Edmonton, Alberta, Canada – July 6, 2006 – Libramation, a leader in providing library automation equipment technology announced today a breakthrough in library RFID tag technology. Libramation will be using the new ICODE SLI-S microchip, which was recently launched by Royal Philips Electronics, exclusively in all their RFID labels. This new microchip will allow libraries to control access to the data which is stored on the RFID tag. This new RFID tag in combination with Libramation's Lib-Digit RFID software provides a higher level of performance and security to libraries and their patrons.
Mr. Frank Mussche, President of Libramation, stated that "security and patron privacy is becoming a primary concern for libraries as they look at implementing RFID technology. The ICODE SLI-S chip, currently being integrated into our "Stealth®" series tags, is the perfect solution that prevents unauthorized access to sections of the on-chip memory. The new chip can password protect the data stored on the chip, by providing password protection allowing read-only access or cloaking the data entirely. The chip is the first ISO 15693/ ISO 18000-3 compliant IC (integrated circuit) offering privacy protection with specific privacy commands. This chip has been designed to be backwards compatible so that it is easily integrated into existing projects and is supported by numerous hardware partners.
